When I think of SPRING, I think of the Easter Bunny, which makes me think of EGGS!!!                                        (aka: My Favorite and TOP Protein Pick)

Eggs are an all-natural, versatile, high-quality protein that is also low calorie (approximately 70 cals/egg). They contain 13 essential vitamins and minerals, and their unique nutritional composition meets a variety of nutrient needs for both children and adults.

Eggs are an easily accessible and affordable protein that can play a vital role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and more.

When I continue to think of eggs, I feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump! I say this because I can talk about eggs the same way Bubba talks bout his beloved shrimp…

“Egg omeletes, scrambled eggs, egg salad, hard-Forrest Gumpboiled eggs, eggs in cake, eggs in meatballs, eggs benedict, green eggs and ham…. “

Lets face it- EGGS ARE AWESOME!!! They should be a staple Balanced Beauty grocery list item and part of your balanced diet!

For those who complain they “don’t have time” to cook or “don’t know how” to cook- eggs are also my go-to solution to ensure your eating clean, with ease and without getting bored. Below are my Top 3 (easy) Balanced Beauty meal/snack egg suggestions:

  • Scrambled eggs: 

    No fuss. Easy to make. Add in tons of extra veggies (spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc) for additional nutritional value. No need to worry about it looking pretty and total cook time = under 5 minutes!

  • Hard-boiled eggs:

    Pop a dozen in a pot on a Sunday. Keep in your refrigerator in an air-tight container to eat throughout the week or as a portable option to bring to work/eat on-the-go. Easily digestible protein pre/post workout or if still hungry before bedtime.

  • Egg Muffins:

Egg Muffin Super cute, creative idea! Fun to serve at an event/brunch or to bring to the office instead of donuts. These are portable, great for kids, and a new way to enjoy your favorite breakfast any time of day….(Gluten-Free/Low-Carb/Low Cal/Paleo FriendlyRECIPE BELOW!
